Charlotte Barnes to fight Bishop's Castle by-election for the Liberal Democrats

Last week I reported that Peter Phillips, the long-serving Lib Dem councillor for the Bishop's Castle ward in Shropshire, has resigned his seat.

The by-election has now been called and will take place on 29 September. And the Liberal Democrat candidate will be Charlotte Barnes:
Charlotte lives in Norbury where she runs an electrical business with her husband, Paul. They have two children, Edward (8) who attends Bishop's Castle Primary School, and Dominic (2) who is due to start at Crowgate Child Centre.

Charlotte is parent governer at Bishop's Castle Primary School. She is also a Parish Councillor for Myndtown Combined Parish Council.
That biography comes from the website for the Lib Dem group on Shropshire Council.

For more on Bishop's Castle politics - in particular on the days when it was one of the country's more notorious rotten boroughs - see an old House Points column of mine.

Later. More on Charlotte Barnes here.

Even later. She won!
